Have you ever had an idea for a new product but just didn’t know how to get started? If so, then this is the podcast for you! Each week, we highlight a different product entrepreneur who turned a great new idea into a successful new product. You’ll hear about their challenges, their triumphs, their ups, and their downs. But, most of all, you’ll learn how each guest was able to take nothing more than an idea, and turn it into a viable, marketable product or business. Our guests have been featured on Shark Tank, The Profit, Today’s Next Big Thing, QVC, Kickstarter and more! Tune in each week to learn how you can move beyond your product idea and toward Making It Real!
